Meet our CEO, Dr. Jeffrey Brooks

Dr. Jeffrey Brooks MD, our CEO, invented the Spatz3 balloon with one goal: creating a safer, more effective solution to help people achieve greater weight loss success. The Spatz3 balloon is the world's first and only adjustable gastric balloon. Designed for 12-month implantation, doubling the typical six-month implantation period of existing balloons, Dr. Brooks recognized that adjusting the size of the balloon after 3-4 months, could kickstart another round of weight loss and ultimately achieve long-term results. Thanks to the pioneering innovation of Dr. Brooks and the Spatz3 team, the Spatz3 balloon has revolutionized the weight loss industry. Today, Spatz is proud to offer a safer and customizable solution clinically proven to help you lose weight .
